This song is by Clawfinger and appears on the album Clawfinger (1997).

Why are you complaining about the violence on TV
When the biggest problem is the violence in reality
You say the media's responsable for choosing what they show
But I think we're all smart enough to know
That the news is here to show us what is really going on,
Entertainment isn't real so how could it be wrong
There ain't no point in banning everything you hate to see,
'Cause if you don't approve all you really have to do is turn off your TV

Violence was here before we had the television,
So I don't think the people really need your supervision
'Cause nobody was laughing when the scenes of war exploded,
It's easier to laugh when the gun ain't loaded
In reality you're dead when you're a victim of a gun
But on a television show the situation can be fun
'Cause the biggest jokes in life are always based on our reality,
The difference is an actor doesn't kill to make his salary

You can't stop the violence with your fake morality
'Cause human nature made brutality
You can't stop the violence with your fake morality
When human nature made brutality
Why are you complaining, why are you complaining, why are you complaining
The only real problem is the violence in reality

If you want to ban a violent show then ban the news
'Cause that's the only film everybody's gonna lose
You can't chose and no one's getting paid,
The only thing that's happening is people getting slayed
Film fiction is a reflection of the facts of real life,
It's impossible to kill somebody with a plastic knife,
So why are you complaining about the violence that you see on TV
When the only real problem is the violence in reality

You can't stop the violence with your fake morality
'Cause human nature made brutality
You can't stop the violence with your fake morality
When human nature made brutality
Why are you complaining, why are you complaining, why are you complaining
The only real problem is the violence in reality... etc
